Cancer charity launches patient information booklets

Pancreatic Cancer Action has published new booklets to help those facing the worry and uncertainty of a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

The new booklets contain the most up-to-date information available to help patients to understand pancreatic cancer, treatment options and the experience of the disease. The information discusses every aspect of living with pancreatic cancer, from dealing with side effects and symptom management, to the emotional impact and planning ahead, whether for recovery or end-of-life care.

All of Pancreatic Cancer Action’s health information is accredited by the Patient Information Forum, a mark that demonstrates high quality information that you can trust.

Rebecca Rice, health and policy manager at Pancreatic Cancer Action said: “We know that everyone is affected by pancreatic cancer differently and no two stories are the same. Therefore, we have designed our information to support patients through their journey and whatever stage you encounter them.”

The following information is available online or in print;

What is pancreatic cancer? – Surgery for operable pancreatic cancer – Controlling the symptoms of pancreatic cancer – Chemotherapy treatment for pancreatic cancer – Diet and nutrition for pancreatic cancer patients – Supportive and end of life care for pancreatic cancer – Recipe book

The charity also provides information and resources for patients affected by pancreatic cancer, stents, cysts and cystic tumours: Eating after a duodenal stent; Pancreatic cysts and cystic tumours.

Pancreatic Cancer Action is a UK charity dedicated to saving lives through early diagnosis of the disease, currently the only cure. It raises awareness of the signs and symptoms, educates healthcare professionals, provides free patient information and funds research into early diagnosis projects.
